What To Know Before Your First Juvederm Appointment
Do you have creases or lines around your nose and mouth you want to treat? Or are you noticing a loss in volume in your cheeks and lips? At your medical spa in Peoria, we understand if you want to enhance your facial appearance. Your skin is always on display, and you want to look your best, even as you age gracefully. You can achieve this with Senara’s Juvederm® injection treatments.
If you’re looking for a way to treat creases and lines around the nose or mouth, Juvederm may be right for you; it can also help to replace lost volume in your cheeks, which will enhance your overall aesthetic. Juvederm can also be used to plump or enhance the shape and size of your lips. When it comes to your appearance, Juvederm is a versatile, safe option to consider for a non-invasive, cosmetic treatment.
As your skin changes over time, so will your opinion about it. Wrinkles, lines, and creases around your mouth, nose, eyes, cheeks, and lips will form as the natural collagen begins to degrade. This is a natural part of aging, but it doesn’t have to be your story. When you schedule an initial consultation with Senara, we’ll discuss your desired outcome, how Juvederm works, and what to expect post-treatment.
What Is Juvederm?
As a hyaluronic acid filler, Juvederm is a natural substance found in the body. This means that allergic reactions are greatly reduced for patients. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in those with young skin, but as an individual ages, the chemical production decreases. Juvederm injections help restore this diminishing effect with manual cosmetic treatments.
How Do Juvederm Treatments Work?
- Juvederm is a non-surgical treatment, which means cosmetic treatment times and recovery are significantly reduced compared to invasive plastic surgery.
It contains modified hyaluronic acid, a naturally occuring sugar present in the human body, as mentioned above.
- Juvederm injections are administered by a healthcare professional to ensure your safety and well-being.
- A common anesthetic, lidocaine, is included in the injection to reduce any potential discomfort during the treatment.
- Juvederm is used to defy lines and get natural-looking results up to one year.
How To Prepare For Juvederm Injections
It’s important to know that certain medications can make patients more prone to bruising. Also, any time the skin is broken, bruising is a possible side effect. The gentle injections of Juvederm typically do not cause bruising, but it’s good to understand that it can happen. To avoid the risk of bruising, cease medications or dietary supplements that thin your blood like aspirin, anti-inflammatories, garlic, fish oil, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, and St. John’s Wort.
Also, bring any concerns or questions to your medical spa professional. They will be able to have a conversation to ensure you feel safe, comfortable, and ready to experience the rejuvenating effects of Juvederm.
What To Expect After Juvederm Injections
Depending on the patient, results of the Juvederm treatment can vary. In most cases, the patient will notice a rejuvenating effect for their skin. For the first 24 hours, it’s best to not massage or apply pressure to the areas you’ve had injected. Furthermore, two weeks post-treatment, it’s best to avoid extended exposure to heat or cold. It’s also strongly recommended to avoid alcoholic beverages for at least two weeks after your Juvederm treatment.
Finally, the patient may experience slight tenderness or swelling at the injection site. This is considered normal, and should eventually remedy itself as your Juvederm settles. Once your Juvederm has settled, you can go back to living your life well!
